There's pretty much Mattel's thinking on any such line. I'm seriously not kidding about the women thing. Mattel has actually gone on record saying that no female characters beyond pretty much Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Supergirl are at all viable at retail. Batgirl and Supergirl only because of their association with their male counterparts.
